About Parisa Bazl
Collaborator on Fashion@Work
I grew up in south Florida with a father from Iran, a mother from England, and as the middle child in a family of three. My two brothers and I were always told that happiness is the most important thing; that we ought to figure out the things that we liked to do and take responsibility for leading a good, fulfilling lives. Each one of my brothers are incredible men who constantly prove to be the best part of my life, encouraging me to accomplish my goals and taking pride in the many milestones along the way.
I went to the University of Florida where my undergraduate studies resulted in a degree in English literature, concentrating in medieval and early modern works – Chaucer, Dante, and Shakespeare all factored in heavily. From there, I moved to New York City for graduate school to study Information Science. It was in grad school that I got into user experience design, thinking about the way in which information is stored, retrieved, and designed for universal accessibility.
I’ve been living in New York City for a while now, where my career began as an Information Architect. Throughout the years, my role naturally evolved into management and department strategy, and now I get to lead many different teams all working to design better experiences.
I’m so excited to be working on this endeavor with Christina. As a young(ish) woman who has experienced firsthand the many challenges of establishing, growing, and – most importantly – believing in a career, I’m really looking forward to connecting with all kinds of other women so that we can continue to listen and learn from each other.
